System Details

Room 3.5mx4.25m + 8sqm bass absorbtion: 20Hz-18kHz 1/12 octave +/-7dB*, 1/3 octave +/-4dB. * Temporal filtering indicates that at least 4dB of this appears to be artefacts due to multiple reflections giving comb filters with very small spatial dimensions affecting the small capsule microphone.
